Employer liable for the death of employee during sex while on business trip

A court in Paris has found a French employer liable for the death of a man who died of a cardiac arrest during sex while on a business trip. The death was ruled an industrial accident, even though the employer argued that the man was not carrying out professional duties when he joined a guest in her hotel room. The French court decided that an employee on a business trip is entitled to social protection “over the whole time of his mission”, regardless of the circumstances.
